Andy Murray out of Wimbledon after shock defeat to Sam Querrey

Andy Murray celebrates winning a point against Sam Querrey

Andy Murray and Sam Querrey will start their match early for all the Wimbledon fans.

A tearful Murray was beaten in four sets that day but has since triumphed twice, in 2013 and past year, with his hopes of a third success alive heading into Wednesday's quarter-finals. Today we will be able to watch all four of the matches, with the action starting out with Murray vs Querrey on Center Court and Muller vs Cilic on Court 1, followed by Raonic vs Federer on Center Court, and Berdych vs Djokovic on Court 1 directly after.

"Always the end of Grand Slams is a odd feeling because in the first week, it's such a big buzz around the players' areas, so busy, but by the semifinals and finals there's very few people around".

The 29-year-old, who was cheered on by his model girlfriend Abby Dixon, becomes the first U.S. tennis player to reach the semi-finals of Wimbledon since 2009.

"I am still in a little bit of shock myself", Querrey said after the match.

"I didn't start my best, but I just kept with it", Querrey continued.

Andy Murray's up-and-down 2017 season took another hit Wednesday when he lost to Sam Querrey in five sets in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon. "I will enjoy this one for the moment, then I will get ready for Friday's semifinals".

Querrey, the third-highest ranked player from the US, upset former World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the third round of last year's Wimbledon. There was obviously an opportunity. In 2016, he ended Djokovic's 30-match Grand Slam winning streak by beating him in the third round.

He might well have won the second set, too, but, after breaking for 4-3, lost his way and the last three games.

Murray struggled with a hip injury after the third set and Querrey took full advantage to book his spot in the last-four.

World No 1 Murray's challenge petered out when he began limping off his right leg, his movement severely compromised by a recent hip problem. His face was contorted in obvious discomfort late in the match, including at one point in the fifth set when he bit the knuckle on his index finger. The end of the fourth set and fifth set, I felt like he hardly missed any first serves.

This is the second year Querrey has scored a major win at Wimbledon. "I'd love to see that final", Hewitt said. I managed to get through a bunch of matches and did okay.

"He was acing me pretty much every time".

Per the ATP, Querrey becomes the first man to win three consecutive five-setters at Wimbledon since Janko Tipsarevic in 2007.
